School Nature Walk Guides

Share nature with children! On weekday mornings in the spring and fall, volunteer guides lead nature discovery activities, tell stories, and play games while taking small groups of K-6th graders on school nature walks through the Whilamut Natural Area of Alton Baker Park.

No experience is necessary; training covers everything from natural history to storytelling to teaching techniques. Guides commit to leading one walk per week (two-three hours) for one season at a time. Training happens in March-April and September. Check out our Overview of the program and come to our next orientation — scheduled for September 10, 6:30-8 pm at the Eugene Public Library — to learn more. Also check out our training calendar for Fall 2019!
